General Discussion / Re: Ebay purchase
« on: February 28, 2018, 01:21:05 AM »
Yeah this happened to me once before also. Won a part on ebay, paid immediately via paypal, and that was the end of ever hearing anything from the seller. Like stated above, use the ebay resolution center. They will ask if you have contacted the seller through the ebay message center and if you haven't heard from the seller they will know. Then ebay tries to get in touch with them and it goes from there. I did receive a refund and I'm confident you will too. It really sucked though because like you I would have rather had the part than the hassle. I've been a member of ebay almost from the beginning and getting refunds in circumstances like this is always in the buyer's best interest. Back in the late 90's I had won a set of swing out tailgate doors for my '72 land cruiser, got in touch with the seller to get an address to send a money order to, and after a few days heard from him that he thought he should get more money because they were worth more than they were bid up to. Needless to say I didn't get the doors. Ebay has come along way since then!

Correct on that Danny. The posts are just reversed. Reversing the polarity is changing a positive ground system to a negative ground system. I've done this quite a few times on some British cars, early Jaguar XK's and Land Rover Series trucks as such. Actually really easy and not much involved.

Definitely looking forward to going and hope we have some nice weather. Always seem to find some interesting stuff to bring home even if I don't need it! Always a great time!  :D

Restoration / Re: Accurate 1969 dash panel replacement?
« on: March 26, 2017, 01:07:05 AM »
Thanks for the input guys. I've looked at a few of the repros now and have only seen what William was talking about. Looked up AMD and didn't realize I live so close, less than 15 miles! Going to have to see what they have. Was really hoping I wouldn't have to go the cut and splice route, but it's looking like my best option as of now. The nova dash sounds like a good idea also. I'll have to look into that as well. Charlotte is also coming up! Maybe find an original cut out one there!  :D

Restoration / Accurate 1969 dash panel replacement?
« on: March 25, 2017, 12:07:13 AM »
Wondering who makes an accurate dash replacement panel for 1969 with the correct area cut out for the VIN tag. The couple that I have seen are really squared off and don't look good at all to me. My 69 dash is pretty gone and will need replacement but am hesitant to do so until I find a good replacement for it. Thanks for any input!

Thanks for the input guys! When I said original spindles I meant the ones off of the 69 not my original 67 drum spindles. Thanks for the heads up on the calipers and bumpstops. Trying to get everything together right now so I have everything I'm going to need on hand.

Just looking for some opinions on which ones anyone has used or their preferences. Getting ready to swap my 67 over to power front disk brakes and going to get all new lines front to rear and on up to the master cylinder. Just looking for some input or thoughts on the subject. Planning to use original spindles and brackets along with single piston calipers from a 69 I acquired a number of years ago. Other than the calipers, would like to make it look factory stock for 1967. Any comments are appreciated! Thanks!

Found an interesting one on craigslist for anyone interested. Special paint 4N L35 SS/RS 396. Haven't called, but ad says all original matching numbers in case someone is interested. I was wondering about the claim on the trim tag code L209B. Anyone have any ideas? Car does sound like a nice one though!

Sad to hear this news. Believe I actually met John and his Camaro years ago at the Superfest when I lived in Michigan. Talked his ear off for awhile about his car and where I could get a CRG hat like the one he was wearing but told me they weren't for sale. Great guy who was very knowledgeable and loved Camaros! My thoughts are with you John, Godspeed friend.

No kidding about the fingers! That machine really moves! Really neat video though to see how it was originally done.

Haven't seen one in person but RK motors in Charlotte, NC had one for sale awhile ago with an endura front bumper. Really nice looking car. I saved a bunch of pictures of it for my screen saver.  ;D

Thanks for the tips guys! Got an old master cylinder I'm going to try this on.

That is a great method. That distribution block looked outstanding! Looked the process up online and it did look fairly simple. One question though; heat seasoning. Why do you heat season? How long and what temperature would you recommend? Toaster oven suitable for small parts? The wife wouldn't be to happy if she asked, "what are you cooking in the oven?", opened it up and it was full of car parts!

Nice blazer! What time did you run? Couldn't see it in the video. Would like put an LQ4 in my '68 C-10 but will probably end up with an LM7 since they are more plentiful and cheaper.
